Wicklow – Overnight Tentipi® Retreat
Escape the city to our riverside Nordic style retreat in Glendalough. Enjoy a slice of nature, sleep in what’s probably the best Adventure tent in the world and experience a guided introduction to Tentipi living with our outdoor expert.
The tipi (max 6 people) is really comfortable for a couple or a family (2 adults and 3 kids) with plenty of space , there is a basic compost loo on site and a covered cooking/dining area. Our riverside camp is good for a refreshing dip (bring your togs) and exploring gorgeous Oak woodland walks. The best thing is- you won’t need the car and you will have exclusive use of the venue overnight.
We are located near Glendalough, Wicklow and it’s only a 10 min walk to pubs, restaurants and shops with a 30 min walk to the ancient monastic site and lakes of Glendalough via the peaceful Greenway.
